Hi, My sister living in Melbourne noticed this picture online and sent me the internet site as she thought I may be one of the kids in the picture, after seeing the picture I can confirm that I'm the blonde boy sitting on the far right, funny to see it after so many years as I remember many of the other faces in the picture. I'm now living in China teaching english to children the same age, I'm now 46 year old, I would have been 7 years old when the picture was taken.

Can't believe I'm looking at a little me- wow how long ago I remember Mrs Moore and her Old English Sheep Dogs, I'm the little girl on the left front in dark clothing and long hair, I'm 50 now and currently travelling around Australia.
